Abstract: The “Informational Revolution” as well as the fantastic development of the “IT world” come and mark the XXI century, as a witness to the emergence and continued evolution of mobile devices. Compact equipment that combines traditional cell phone features with personal computer functionality, today’s mobile devices are the result of a growing number of hardware and operating systems (Android, iOS, Windows Phone, BlackBerry). Today’s smart mobile devices are being used less and less for calls and more and more for socializing and information! Thus, the intelligent mobile device has become a complex storage of sensitive data that helps identify the “behavior” of its owner. This has generated the forensic evolution of mobile devices, a branch of “digital forensics” dealing with the recovery of data stored by a mobile device.

Keywords: Mobile devices, mobile forensics, data.
